Track Night 2020: Portland International Raceway- July 31
In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. New processes and procedures are being developed and will be put into place for events going forward.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to assess the risk to you, both on-track and off, and to make the decision on whether or not to participate. If you are feeling unwell or are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath please stay home. If you have been in contact with someone who has been experiencing these symptoms in the last two weeks, please stay home.
Please take this seriously. Each individual has different concerns about the risk of infection and it is important to take everyone's feelings into consideration. The approach we are taking and asking you to join us in is much in alignment with our "same team" approach. Just as your safety and well-being on track depend on everyone working together, the same applies in the paddock as well. As such, we ask that everyone respect the health concerns of others, whether you share them or not.
While on-site please take the health and safety of your fellow participants, volunteers, and staff into consideration and practice social distancing, wear a mask, and wash your hands, and/or use hand sanitizer frequently. All attendees and staff will be required to wear a face covering (mask, bandana, balaclava, helmet, etc.) any time they are outside of their own vehicle.
Portland International Raceway (PIR) is located in Portland, Oregon, just south of the Columbia River, less than a mile west of Interstate 5. The track hosts SCCA, ICSCC, and OMRRA road racing, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, and SCCA autocross events. The facility also includes a dragstrip and a motocross track. The road course is almost perfectly flat and runs clockwise with two possible track configurations. Track Night in America will utilize the one that includes a hard chicane at the end of the front straight and involves twelve turns at a length of 1.967 miles (3.17 km).
